. >> michael steele, a lover of women. thank you for joining us. >>> actor george clooney was released about an hour ago after being arrested outside of sudan embassy. he was arrested this morning protesting an escalating emergence on sudan. he said he could only hope his brief arrest draws attention to this situation. >> you never know if you're accomplishing anything. we're trying to bring attention to a moment in time that's important. we hope that as the people understand there really is a ticking clock on this. we need to get moving. >> next, the president in chicago after a very busy week indeed. stay with us. >> it's now been 200 years since the british came here to the white house under somewhat different circumstances. they made quite an impression. they really lit up the place. >> i am a little embarrassed as i stand here to think that 200 years ago my ancestors tried to burn this place down. ♪ we always hear about jobs leaving america. here's a chance to create jobs in america. oil sands projects, like kearl, and the keystone pipeline will provide secure and reliable energy to t
and the statue of lenin and stalin? >> michael steele is only one man. he fought the good fight, but there's only so much he can do. >> holy cow. you know, we usually have the democratic hour of power here. but seriously, last week was a week with carl marks. even barnacle went way off the cliff. >> he was wearing a nike pullover track suit on friday, so he completely mailed it in by thursday afternoon. >> oh, i hear you guys were so unkind to mike barnicle, i even felt sorry for him. >>> coming up, we're going to be talking to presidential candidate rick santorum. >>> also, congressman elijah cummings. >>> and later, we'll have willem dafoe stopping by. very exciting. >>> also, mika jets in from the south of france. but first, here's bill cairns with a check on the forecast. bill, i just -- i don't know what to say about this weather except you've got to love global warming. i hope it sticks around for a couple of months. >> yeah, i know. don't go buying any snow blowers anytime soon. it's just incredible. international falls, minnesota, one of the coldest places there is, was 80 degrees this we
to is there is still an uphill climb to get to 1,144 delegates by mitt romney. michael steel that devised this system, he was on your network a couple of weeks ago, and he said it would be very difficult for romney to get to 1,144. i spoke last week with someone with rick santorum's super pac, and they have a strategy in line, the santorum campaign, of infiltrating a lot of caucus states that have non-binding contests and trying to up the delegate count and take delegates away from mitt romney. the margin for error to get to 1,144 is still very slim, not a slam dunk by any means. >> you believe this is still a reasonable chance for newt gingrich to be a player here? >> yes, i think anybody, when i do the delegate math here, and i think the key date is april 24th. that is the key date. that is the pennsylvania and new york primaries are that day. i think rick santorum has to win his home state of pennsylvania and has to stop romney from getting all 95 out of new york f those two things happen, this race is going to go until at least june 5th because the calendar in may is very friendly towards rick sa
